Permanent Recruitment

You probably already know how time-consuming and challenging it can be recruiting staff yourself. And it may be that your experience with recruiters isn’t any better – especially if you’ve been bombarded with unsuitable, unvetted applicants leaving you with the lion’s share of the work interviewing and deciding if any of them is the right one.

If you relate to this, you’ll appreciate the way we make the recruiting process easier for you – like a breath of fresh air. Recommending just one or several well-vetted candidates whom we know, will add the most value to your business.

How can we say that?

Our MD worked in your industry for much of his life. He employed construction and related industry staff himself, then started using recruiters. Frustration and time wasters got him thinking ‘there must be a better way.’ And so, in 2005, he created Building Recruitment.

A unique recruitment service that focuses on your industry…and cuts through the bs to get the right people for your requirements without the dramas.

Today, we’re probably the construction industry’s leading recruiter – partnering with the major names and really getting to know the people who will eventually work with you.

Given our volume of work, we’re also a small team. Doers, not talkers, passionate about what we do. Let’s get to know each other.

How we work better for you:

Anyone can find jobseekers – that’s only half the battle. It’s how quickly you can determine what and how they best meet your needs that counts. Unlike most recruiters, we interview every candidate. So, you get people who are a fit for your role and culture, not just part of a mass mailing. Our interviews are thorough and detailed as we get to know the candidate, their ambitions and achievements, and what they can bring to your business. We know time is paramount and work to ensure placement can be made quickly to eliminate competitors looking for the same people.

Our reference checking is vital and thorough and can enhance the strength of the applicant to deliver the best outcome for both of you.

With exclusive job orders, you get a full debrief of the candidate, reformatted resumes and verbal references. This reduces the amount of resumes you review – sometimes there may be only one or two – as we have done all the vetting. You know who and what you are getting before you start the interview process.

With an understanding of clients’ and candidates’ motivations, we are in the best position to match a candidate’ expertise and skills with your needs.

You can be assured of the highest ethical standards, confidentiality and professional conduct; and you can call on our experience to recruit candidates at all levels, from graduates through to board level directors.

We’re part of your world!

We believe in putting something back to the industry and business community.

That’s why our people work within building sector Associations such as Master Builders and National Association of Woman in Construction (NAWIC). We work closely with MIT and Unitec as well as MPTT, advising trainees about how to promote themselves when looking for work.

In a skill short market, we look outside the square. Believe it or not, we advertise only 20% of the roles we work on. Most are filled by attracting applicants from our industry-specific database, overseas seminars and roadshows, international talent searching and social media.

You’ll also see us exhibiting at national industry expo’s, involved in industry conferences and workshops, reinforcing our unique role as building industry recruiters.

Our clients include international, national and regional main contractors; specialist sub-contractors; national and local residential builders; architectural practices; property and real estate groups; surveying practices and engineering consultancies throughout New Zealand.
